Brett’s iTip: It’s Time to Pay the Apple Way! If you haven’t yet used your iPhone instead of an old-fashioned, physical credit card, it’s time to understand how this works because it is definitely the near future. Here’s how I recommend starting: You already have a physical credit card so add that card to your Apple Wallet (open Wallet and tap plus sign) - you’ll have to verify adding that card to Apple Wallet with your card issuer (the app walks you through all the steps). Now instead of handing over a physical credit card the next time you visit Target or your store of choice, pull out your iPhone and double-click the side button to bring up Apple Pay and select the card you want to use. Then hold your iPhone close to the payment terminal - you’ll have to verify this with either your FaceID or TouchID or your Passcode.
